Willing to travel for a 455 LE?

Good score Shanster!

I called & talked to him.  Sending pics tomorrow.

At first glance it appears this is not a 50th anny.  No gold dash.  But who knows.  I dont think he has the PHS documents so the only thing I will be able to go from is the vin & the cowl tag. 

He sez rough interior but he has most of the new pieces parts that go with the car.  No rust & faded paint.

I will know more tomorrow, hopefully.

Thanks Shank.

Squirrel, yes you lucked out in finding the car that you wanted that is really close to you.  I am jealous!

My hunt for a 76 455 is not going as planned.  Many are over priced, most aren't what they appear to be (25th clones being passed as the real deal), and ALL of them are WAY to far for me to look at.

I really wonder what happened to all the TA's that were in West Virginia?  Must have went to the crusher...

I am still on the hunt. In fact I have included the 77/8/9 TA's as well as some late 79/80 Z28's and a El Camino year or two.

I bet there is one in my hometown, I just have to ferret it out!  LOL

I want to thank the TA community in their help in finding my ultimate TA.  Your a fine group of individuals & I am honored to be in your "presence".

I leave tomorrow early Am for a 8 hr drive to New York to pick up a 76 400 4sp, white exterior & blue & white interior project car.

For some silly reason I have already started to formulate plans on my second project.  When I jump in, I traditionally jump in the deep end!

This thread is officially closed.  I will open up a new one with the restoration of the above car.
